Book Review

The thing that stood out to me the most was the variety of ways that love is shown across the pages. There’s the usual hugs and kisses, but there’s also the mention of helping someone cross the street and buckling up in the car.

There’s so many ways that adults show love to kids but kids might not always pick up on those statements. This book helps to be more explicit about how our actions show our love.

Book Review

This book was a bit of a tear-jerker!

As the cover shows, the story focuses on a little boy and his teddy bear. We see the little boy play with his teddy bear in different situations, which means we also see the teddy bear get more and more worn down.

Towards the end of the story, the teddy bear needs a repair and the little boy is a bit hesitant. In the end, the little boy agrees that the teddy bear needs some repair and let’s his mom repair the teddy bear.

Another tearjerker! In this adorable story, the little girl is taking care of a duckling and we get to see the little duckling grow as we move through the pages.

The ending is absolutely adorable but also so heartwarming as we see the duckling move on and create their own family! They grow up so quickly!
